David, I had a 99 Tahoe it was a Excellent SUV, I also work for a chevy Dealership and that is a great price with low miles. My 99 tahoe did pretty good on gas I would get around 18 miles around town, highway about 25 I was IMPRESSED. I just bought 2 weeks ago a 2005 Chevy tahoe OMG what a beauty this is Z71 Package TV with DVD player XM Radio ON STAR 3rd row seats all leather and heated seats, never liked leather seats till I had my 99 tahoe and I will NEVER go back to cloth.Well if you buy this Tahoe GOOD LUCK.................TRUST ME you will enjoy this SUV.

At wide open throttle the computer in these vehicles turns off the A/C compressor to reduce the potential of damage at high engine RPM and also to provide extra horsepower for passing. What you are describing is normal operation if it only does it when you have the gas pedal all the way to the floor. It should have always done this though and not just started a few months ago.

I recently purchased a 99 Tahoe Z71 for the wife.(Jan 05). Love it! I also just became a member to this forum and noticed your problem is our problem to a T. The rear cargo water leak problem that is. I wanted to know if you have ever found a solution to your water releaking? Anyone else out there knows?Thanks, Lorenn...

Check for a leaking vacuum hose or resevoir. When accelerating the engine does not develop as much vacuum. If there is a leak in the vacuum system, the ac will allow the heater door to move and switch to hot air, the default for a system failure. I am sorry you went to all the trouble of changing the condensor as this is both a common and simple to fix problem.
It was especially common on the 4.3L v6 engine.

Get a warranty! Bought a 99 tahoe w/ 54,000 2.5 years ago. Replaced; ERG(59,000miles), front-end(85,000) job, fuel pump(75,000), tranny(68,000), intake gasket(100,000) $$$$. The rear axle seal is starting to leak. I get 19 MPG high way and about 15-16 "city"(not a reliable number, three traffic lights probably doesn't count for city driving). I check it all the time.
#5338 of 6471 EMPLOYEE DISCOUNT PLUS NEW WHEELS. GREAT DEALS CERTFICATE
Jun 27, 2005 (11:15 pm)
I recently totaled my 2005 LS Chevrolet Tahoe in a MVA; thank goodness I was not at fault. The GM Employee Discount could not have come at a better time. Since pickings were slim in the color I was looking for, I opted for a LT Tahoe in Silver Birch; this color is new for 2005 Tahoes. My Tahoe is equipped with everything except navigation and autoride. MRSP-45, 705.00. Employee Discount price was 35,693.38. If you are a previous owner of a Chevy Tahoe, pay close attention to all correspondence from Chevrolet. Don't be quick to throw away any specials that come through the mail. Back in April I received a post card from GM advertising for NEW WHEELS, GREAT DEALS CERTIFICATE . It's details were 2500 allowance on 20 inch rims or 1500 in GM loyalty. Luckily I kept this postcard and was allowed to use it on this deal. The final cost on my 2005 Chevy Tahoe LT was 34,193.38! (5.3 V8 engine, leather, DVD, power glass sunroof, wheel flares, bose premium speakers, 6 cd changer, third row seat, etc.). If you threw away your certificate or unsure if you qualify for this deal, call Chevrolet at 1-866-466-9637. The reps will assist you with verification of eligibility. Then notify your salesman of your eligibility and have him/her call that same number to obtain your certificate number. The NEW WHEELS, GREAT DEALS CERTIFICATE EXPIRES ON 6/30/2005 So Hurry! I really hope this will help someone!
#5339 of 6471 Replacing door check straps on 2001 Tahoe

#5340 of 6471 Onstar Problems
Jun 28, 2005 (6:28 am)
I have a 2001 Chevy Tahoe and have no green blinking light.Onstar said it looked like there is no power and suggested taking it to the dealer. I have no problem with that accept I don't want to take it in just to hear it was a fuse. Does anyone know where the fuse is so I might test the fuse link so not to waste a mechanics time for a simple problem.
